    Drum Corps Map and Daily Rundown

    May 22, 2018 Blue Stars move in to Forest City, IA. Blue Stars is the final 2017 Top 12 corps to begin spring training. The corps has been very tightly placing around the #10 spot for several years now with a Lucas Oil Stadium historical average placement of 10.1. Troopers move in to Douglas, WY. Troopers has not made finals since the first year at Lucas Oil Stadium (2009). In 2017, the corps finished about 2.5 spots lower than its LOS historical average at 17th.

    Best Corps Sections to Sit With at Regionals

    I like to bring things full circle so I thought I'd close this out by letting you all know where the tickets came from for my summer. This had muchmore to do with ease of purchasing desired tickets and much less to do with any judgment about a particular corps' supporters. San Antonio - Crossmen Atlanta - Madison Scouts Allentown - Phantom Regiment DCI Finals - Colts By the way, I willing be looking for single tickets for Thursday and Friday in Indianapolis so if anyone finds him/herself with an extra ticket, especially in a DCI Friends section, please keep me in mind. I'm sitting in the 100 level on Saturday and very open to other locations for Thursday and Friday. Happy to make some new friends or connect with people I've only connected with here.
  4. I apologize if this was mentioned elsewhere, but I didn't recall seeing it. The original article indicates that Mr. Moody's license revocation was for five years. If that began in 2010, he's been legally able to teach in Florida since at least 2015. That does not change anything about his original hiring by Crossmen, of course, but there is a big difference between a lifetime revocation of a license and a permanent ban on future public employment.

    May 20, 2018 Blue Knights move into Denver, CO. The corps has finished each of the last four years above its historical average at Lucas Oil Stadium - 8th, 6th, 7th, and 8th - compared to average of 8.9. Colts move into Dubuque, IA. The corps has had a tight range of placements right around its historical LOS average of 14.7. Santa Clara Vanguard - Updated to reflect move-ins in Ashland, OR.

    Yes, and it's oddly not in west Texas at all.

    Drum Corps Map and Daily Rundown

    May 19, 2018 It's a big day for corps to move in: Blue Devils - Concord, CA Genesis - West, TX Madison Scouts - Trafalgar, IN Santa Clara Vanguard - Santa Clara, CA Blue Devils is the clear #1 corps in the Lucas Oil Stadium era with six #1 finishes out of nine years and never falling below the silver medal. Genesis is the first non-finalist 2017 corps to move into spring training. The corps has been very consistent in its recent placements whether in Open or World class in the 22-23 range for the past five seasons. Madison Scouts have been performing below its LOS average (10.8) for the past two years (13th and 12th). Santa Clara Vanguard has the highest average LOS performance (4.7) without a gold medal. With its highest LOS performance in 2017 (#2), is 2018 the year?

    May 18, 2018 The Cavaliers move into Adrian, MI and Crossmen move into San Antonio, TX. Santa Clara Vanguard website shows percussion in Denton, TX, but the full corps is scheduled to move into Santa Clara, CA on May 19 so I'm leaving this one off the list for now. There is a lot of attention on The Cavaliers as they have been outperforming their Lucas Oil Stadium average performance (5.3) for the past two years. Have they returned to the upper echelon? Crossmen has now made finals for each of the past four years with four straight years of placements better than its Lucas Oil Stadium average (13.4).

    May 17, 2018 Bluecoats head to Marion, IN and Phantom Regiment heads to Macomb, IL. Bluecoats has the 4th highest average placement at Lucas Oil Stadium at 4.2, just behind The Cadets. Will they follow the path of Carolina Crown post-2013 as a perennial favorite after the 1->5 fall or are they going to follow the Phantom Regiment post-2008 path after the 1->9 drop that has then kept them in the middle of the finals pack? Speaking of Phantom Regiment, the corps has placed below its LOS average (6.7) for each of the past four seasons with 2017 matching the corps' worst performance at the stadium at #9.

    May 15, 2018 And then there were three! The Cadets move into Johnstown, PA. Although the corps had its lowest Lucas Oil Stadium placement ever in 2017 at 7th, The Cadets is still the third highest placing corps, on average, at the stadium at 4.0. Clearly a new era for The Cadets begins.

    May 14, 2018 The second corps to move in is Boston Crusaders who took residency at Castleton University in Castleton, VT. Boston Crusaders is coming off a 6th place finish in 2017, its best placement in the Lucas Oil Stadium era and 2.6 places higher than its LOS average of 8.6. This follows the corps' worst finish at LOS in 2016 in 12th. The early move-in suggests a "going for it" mentality in Boston.

    May 13, 2018 The first corps to move in a full section or more is Carolina Crown as percussion heads to Boiling Springs, North Carolina, a whopping 39 days before the DCI Tour premiere. Carolina Crown is coming off a 3rd place finish in 2017, its third medal year in a row. In the 9 years at Lucas Oil Stadium, Carolina Crown is averaging a 2.9 finish, second best among all corps, and the only corps other than Blue Devils never to finish out of the top 5 at LOS.

    Santa Clara Vanguard 2018

    Does anyone know officially when/where SCV is moving in for spring training? Website has Denton, TX for percussion on 5/18-5/19 and Santa Clara, CA on 5/19. That seems like quite a trek for the percussion section...thanks!
